Red Solution After Reaction
Moments after applying the reductant, the solution turns to a deep red color, which needs to be purified by filtration. The pure final product is obtained without any further manipulations.
“The complex was easily reduced without any complications or undesired reactions on the ligand itself. We can now comfortably study how these normally very reactive complexes behave with things like oxygen and other small molecules.”
